    Great points to make. I just get so frustrated when I keep seeing "well no critique here, but pretty horse". Yes, it is wonderful that you think the horse is pretty, however quite frankly, I could care less if you think that the horse is ugliest thing in the world, that's not what people are looking for. People place their horses on the critique section to be evaluated for number of reasons, not just if it is pretty. It's fine that people want to do this, but perhaps go to the horse picture section of site.

    As far as the younger posters goes. Yes, you are correct in that a "lighter" critique would be appropriate, and a complement sandwich is a wonderful thing to point out. However, not everyone is going to take that into consideration. Like you stated, horsepeople can be way too opinionated, I know that I am guilty of this myself. So I think it stands to all ages (young and old) please remember that when you place your horse on that board, you may not like all the feedback that you receive. However, you are the one putting yourself out there. If it really bothers you, then skip reading over what you don't like and move on.

    I can see how that gets annoying x_x! Its hard for me to view the other side of the scale, but you just pointed it out and it all makes sense to me now, lol! I see -exactly- what you mean when, say, you post a picture of yourself jumping and want critique. Instead, all you get is fluff and comments on how the horse's eye is pretty, when what you really want is for someone to help you figure out why something in the picture doesnt look right.

    The more experienced horse people don't need the compliment sandwich as much as some of the younger participants, or new participants. Its just filler and fluff for the people who are genuinely looking for the constructive criticicm, not "the goods and bads"

    It all makes sense to me now, lol!

    I would like to see more critiques with something good, something to work on, then ending on something good.

    I agree with the age thing, but I have noticed riders who are more capable have harder critisim that the newer riders. Which is understandable but to be honnest, I think even if it is an aswful horse, awful rider awful everything, viewers of the post and find ONE thing nice to say. Many do, but I see many people just post the bad things then that's it.
